While some are skeptical about the future of electric motorcycles, others, like Adam Kay, are far more enthusiastic. So enthusiastic, in fact, that he’s just named his latest project ‘Death to Petrol.’
It’s all very tongue in cheek of course. As the founder of Untitled Motorcycles in London, Adam has a number of petrol-powered customs under his belt—and he plans to build more. But he’s also pragmatic about the future, and curious about the potential of electric drivetrains as a platform for customization.
“Can the basic rules for designing a motorcycle be ripped up?” he asks. “Do you need to hold the bike with your legs? Where and how should the rider sit? Tank or no tank? Foot peg position? Road presence? Speed versus noise?”
It’s this train of thought that led Adam to design ‘DTP.’ Pieced together from a custom frame, a prototype motor and a handful of off-the-shelf parts, it’s a great case study in how a compact electric urban motorcycle could look and ride.
